Just install Windows you dont need to install the sata driver or disable them.When it says Hit F6 to install other drivers.Dont hit F6.Without installing those drivers the HD will run in ide mode

Dear "angryhippy"

I got the FS Amilo M7440, with chipset

Thanks for your attention, i found the solution around FS website, here:

i used the second option, "Disable the AHCI" and after the XP installation i updated the SATA Drivers from the windows using this information:

and i enabled the AHCI in Bios with success.

But look:

After i do it all, my sound in not Playing, i have downloaded the Realtek AC97 driver recommended from FS but is not working, The other drives like (Modem, Wireless, etc)
Worked successful.

When i go to device manager (Start- Run- devmgmt.msc) everything is well installed even the sound drivers so WHAT Is the Problem Now??

I tried to Uninstall and install the sound drives from devmgmt.msc but is not working.

I'm looking for solution so lets fight together.

Peace and Thanks for your attention once again.
